Hello everyone, I'm trying to start mining with RPCminer on mac, I followed this guide:

http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=14348.0

However when I try to start I get the following message:

"CURL return value = 22
Could not retrieve work from RPC server.
CURL return value = 22
No blocks are being hashed right now.  This can happen if the application is
still starting up, you supplied incorrect parameters, or there is a
communications error connecting to the RPC server.
Could not retrieve work from RPC server."

etc.

Can anyone help me? I would really like to contribute to this project (and make som money hehe) =)

E:

Update I tried Diablominer but it gives me the following error:


[6/17/11 7:01:27 AM] ERROR: OpenCL platform Apple contains no devices
Did something go wrong? Relaunch and enter the Set up wizard by pressing 1 and Enter during start-up, and check your configuration.
logout

I have the Macbook Pro 2011-model


Please somebody HELP!!

bitcoin-rpcminer-20110227\rpcminer-cpu.exe -url=http://api.bitcoin.cz:8332 -user=USER.WORK -password=123 -workrefreshms=2000 -statsurl=http://mining.bitcoin.cz/stats/

What hardware are you running? Are you on Snow Leopard, fully updated?

I welcome you to try poclbm http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=12360, but if you couldn't get Diablo working then there is probably something else going on.

Try jumping onto the thread I linked. But diablo should just work out of the box... Are you using a GUI tool or the command line script?
